The Butterfly Club presents

Martin Dunlop Small Tales of Little Mercy

Hellfire and damnation await!

The Reverend Martin Dunlop invites all and sundry to the Little Mercy Chapel and Refectory for a dose of ol’ time storytelling to save your sweet immortal soul.

From the murky swamps of the 'gator-infested bayou to the sweltering foyer of a decrepit hotel awaiting a storm, gather round for a hilarious one-man sketch show of pure Southern Gothic parody in the spirit of A Streetcar Named Desire, To Kill a Mockingbird and other gloomy American stories you might have been forced to read for literature class at some point.

Watch in horror as long-held secrets are uncovered, long-buried passions unearthed and somebody turns out to have been somebody else’s mother all along.

Who’s that waiting in the deep shadows of the barn? Who claims the rights to the Salazar plantation? Why do all the women keep fainting? To answer in order: wait and see, wait and see and corsets.

'A perfect choice when you need a break from the stand-up routines.' Pop Culture-y

'As hysterically funny as it is ingenious. ★★★★½' The Music

'An intellect and an imagination like none-other. ★★★★' Beat Magazine
